    Wanna lend me some money then?

    Working part time job which I'm about to lose(circuit city liquidation ftl) while going to college more than fulltime(18 credits instead of 12-15) doesn't give me much time to make money for a DD..(while paying 198 a month for the bird)


    Oh well, gonna rip my store with overtime until it closes in 2 months, collect unemployment and find side tech-jobs to do.

    Im 19, and im college also. Ever hear of insuring the car for 6months instead of 12... That way the $1000 you save you could go buy a beater. Exactly what I did. And I have 18 credits this semester to and 2jobs btw.

    Credits differ from college to college... I know people that take 30 credits which means nothing, can't really relate credits from one college to the other. (how many credits do you gotta take to finish in 4 years ontime?)
    Bad weather in NY is also for like 1-2 months every other time its Firebird time. Its more like for 2 weeks out of the year you can't drive this car in NYC.
    Also, I'm one of those people that bought my car to enjoy it and drive it, not keep it in the garage for 95% of the year. I bought it in June and have around 4-5k miles on it so far.

    This is a bad idea... your paint cant breathe.... and yes paint does need to breathe, ask any body shop why your not supposed to wax a freshly painted car for 90 days at least....

    Paint does not breathe It outgasses and today's catalyzed paints cure very fast. And you can apply Zaino over fresh paint and it won't hurt a thing.

    na not daily but from november-april the cars away, and in the spring/summer when its guna be windy or raining i toss the tarp on so the water cant get through the cover or so the wind doest blow leaves under the cover or move the cover around "buffing" the paint. Keeps the cover on there firmly.
